The Real Estate Geek

Real Estate Resources

The Real Estate Geek uses an analysis methodology similar to the analysis for any investment. It evaluate cash flows generated by an investment, generates return values which can then be compared to returns from other forms of investments. This methodology is a standard and widely accepted investment valuation technique.

Evaluation of Real Estate Investments is an art and a science. The science aspect is the dry, mechanical, number crunching which the Real Estate Geek is designed to facilitate. The art is the understanding of the economic drivers (such as the potential of value-added to a property, the "highest and best" use of a property, or the most beneficial leverage structure) which leads to successful investment results.
